How did he start? Sami wanted that that all people, especially youth, had equal access to education opportunities. He describes the joy of ten new likes on the Facebook page or 50 visitors on the portal. Today, more than a million of people like the Facebook page of For9a.com and about 10,000 visitors each day.
